Liverpool fans win praise following United defeat

Willian has been one of Chelsea's key players this season. It looks like Jose Mourinho wants Alexis Sanchez to play a similar role for Manchester United

"Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team". It began a tad earlier this time in February with the comeback 2-1 Old Trafford win against champions Chelsea.

Liverpool labored to keep the ball in the attacking half and click at a quick enough pace. Both United goals came from Lukaku winning aerial battles against Lovren, until Liverpool finally switched around and had Virgil van Dijk mark the forward on goal kicks. Totally unmarked, albeit with many bodies in his way, the usual composed Salah would not have shanked it so angrily.

The match began in a subdued manner, with both sides struggling to build up play at a high tempo. Meanwhile, the actual home side looked ready for a fight from the start.

"We had also the possibility of the long ball to Scott McTominay and to play against (Andy) Robertson in the air", revealed Mourinho, who appears to be bucking the trend of aversion to direct football. Mourinho's men were sensational and Old Trafford responded. An uncharacteristic error saw him leave Juan Mata open against Karius, but he was let off as the Spaniard couldn't convert.

Ronaldo's 32nd and 33rd goals moved him one ahead of his Barcelona rival.

In the first leg, the Red Devils drew 0-0 in Spain thanks to a heroic David De Gea performance.

"I think this was a chance that we didn't want to lose and we made".

He excelled, leaping to head on for Marcus Rashford to bag his 14th-minute opener. With Mourinho at the helm, they have the best chance of climbing back to the summit, but they need to address a few problems within their squad.

Sanchez, once again, did not enjoy his finest game, but it mattered little in the grand scheme as Rashford displayed his clinical edge to fire United into a 2-0 lead before half-time.

"Seville and Brighton are more important games than Liverpool", Mourinho said after the 2-1 win. Every time he is left out of the starting line-up, questions are raised about his long-term future and his relationship with Mourinho, but the United boss insisted that his selection or otherwise has been based purely upon his impact in training.

"He plays like he already played five or six years in the Premier League, but he's still young".

Liverpool were left to rue a slow start as Rashford twice finished impressively after Romelu Lukaku had outmuscled Dejan Lovren.

Although one cannot legislate for Rashford's brilliance, Klopp was not very pleased with Liverpool's defending for the goals.

But it was Rashford's performance which must delight Mourinho. City have won here with two set-pieces. Other than Eric Bailly's own-goal, it was a perfect afternoon for the United manager, and a display his supporters will argue vindicates his approach.
